I swear every time I blink this site has fifteen new features. Six months isn't /that/ long a time to blink, is it?

    Okay so, Poll time again.

    I'm sitting on a number of things now, thanks to the S5 finale kicking me into gear. That said, I've got nothing in a finished state just yet. I feel like I should post something new though, if just so I don't wind up going into another drought.

    These are just placeholder names, but they are-

    Phantom Responsibility

    "Phantom Responsibility. Tell me, have you ever heard of anything like that?"

    "I... n-no, I can't say that I have."

    Sunset Shimmer sighed and nodded. "I'd figured as such. But it's the closest description that we've got, to what's happening here... or rather, over there."

    A Foe on Equestrian Soil

    "Come on out, darling..." Rarity crooned to the open air. "I know you're out here somewhere..."

    The forest air was deathly still, but the white pony knew not to let her guard down. Especially not now. Not while their 'visitor' was still at large.

    "Did the Order of the Horn send you?" a mare's voice echoed through the woods around her. "A white unicorn. You had to have been!"

    A Funeral Dirge you can Dance to.

    This was an 'end' to a story that I had no idea how to actually begin or even middle for. So it stands alone. Also, many apologies to Jim Henson, God rest his soul.


    "Okay so, how do we get ourselves out of this one?"

    That feel when

    That feel when a drabble you wrote one day, suddenly resolves itself into a cohesive one-shot in a single sitting.

    Prepare for Sunset feels.

Okay so, Poll time again. · 3:00am Feb 23rd, 2016

I'm sitting on a number of things now, thanks to the S5 finale kicking me into gear. That said, I've got nothing in a finished state just yet. I feel like I should post something new though, if just so I don't wind up going into another drought.

These are just placeholder names, but they are-

Luna's Rebel Phase: Connected with The Talk, in which Sunset recalls the day Vice-Principal Luna returned to Canterlot High.

AJ and the Crystal War: AJ turned back a split second to ask Twilight questions, and got an exploding map table to the face. Now she's seeing things...

Human Sunset's adventures in Equestria: In which a distraught human girl takes a long fall, and wakes up in the care of ponies...

That one story which hasn't been finished yet: You goddamned jar of molasses just post the next chapter already.

So yeah. Leave your votes in the following link, please.

First vote goes to WoW. :heart:

Argh, these all sound good. :raritydespair:

jar of molasses just post the next chapter already.

Could be worse I suppose. Instead of molasses, it could have been pitch...

Argh, these all sound good.

Dammit! Where is the "yes" option in the poll?!

I feel like I should post something new though, if just so I don't wind up going into another drought.

Careful. That's one of the best ways to end up forcing a drought. Oh and my vote's on:

AJ and the Crystal War: AJ turned back a split second to ask Twilight questions, and got an exploding map table to the face. Now she's seeing things...

Finish On a Whisper of Wind

I'll be honest, I chose the last choice simply because of what you named it.

Even though I'd love for you to finish your current on-going story, 3772224 's insensitiveness and 3772390 's lack of sympathy, plus the way you phrased the option in this blog, would make me feel terrible for asking for an update of "On a Whisper of Wind." I love that small series you've created a lot, but knowing you wrote it at expenses of your well-being and happiness would only sour the experience for me.

My vote is for either

AJ and the Crystal War: AJ turned back a split second to ask Twilight questions, and got an exploding map table to the face. Now she's seeing things...

Human Sunset's adventures in Equestria: In which a distraught human girl takes a long fall, and wakes up in the care of ponies...

Just give my vote to the one which has most by the end of the poll.

I was mostly just poking fun at myself , and the fact that I've spent so long working on it. No offense taken here.

I voted Whisper of Wind, but I was really torn between that and the Human Sunset fic. You'd do it awesomely. :twilightsmile:

Insensitiveness? He asked us what we wanted. This is the sequel to the story that was the basis for every r63/gender swapped story in the fandom, what's insensitive about wanting to finish reading a story you've been looking forward to for years? You're an idiot.

Let me explain where I'm coming from. The way Conner phrased that choice gave me the impression that he was beating himself down over not finishing that story. I hate watching people disappreciate themselves in any way, because I sympathize with that feeling all too well. When I read your comment, it gave me the impression that it had a demanding and indifferent tone. As if you just read that the option was there, but disregarded the way it was written.

Now, Conner told me already that he was just poking fun at himself and that he is not offended. While I have my doubts about it, I can't argue against his claims. And given what I know now, I'd like to offer you an apology.

HOWEVER, you inmediately had a kneejerk reaction to my comment and returned my remark with an insult. I'm not an idiot, I had my reasons as explained above.

What were your reasons to be deliberatedly hurtful, sir/lady?

3773501
Because you affected a self-righteous victim-on-behalf-of-someone-else air when the person in question was not injured in any fashion. That kind of crap is why Derpy was originally censored on the show, and it robs people of their agency when you try to be offended for them; you can see that exact same mindset playing merry havoc through the media while actual injured parties are just used as excuses to attack someone.

May I please beseech the two of you to chill? Not particularly fond of fights popping up in my journals.

FFFFFF- AJ AND THE CRYSTAL WAR ALL THE WAY!!
